Striped dolphin show

This morning was all about the dolphins. First we encountered our resident common dolphins who were very keen to bowride, as they often are. It was really nice to see them surfing the waves right in front of our boats, a sight we can never get enough of. Further offshore we encountered a different species: striped dolphins. The typical behaviour of these dolphins is very different; they are very active, travelling at speed and leaping out of the waves in unison. Today we got to see the best of this type of behaviour, especially since the sea was choppy, giving the dolphins plenty of waves to leap out of. It was a striped dolphin show, as you can see in the few photos below that we managed to capture this morning:
